Just a little heads up, my quick release seatpost clamp decided to randomly snap on me today. Fortunately i wasnt far from home but it could have been nasty.

The ebay shop i got it from are talking to the suppliers to see whats what.

Just thought id mention it - would be interesting to know if the same has happened to anyone else?

  • I have always found all of my KCNC products to be really very good. I run seatpost, and bars as well as clamps, bolts and skewers etc. Maybe you just have an unlucky experience with it..
  • over-tightened maybe?

    no, its been on my bike for about a year, definitely wasnt over tight. Im careful!

    Ive always found them good as well up to now, hey ho

    That's a bit worrying. As I'm sat here fondling my new KCNC bar ends...

    Got the standard bolt clamp on the NRS. Only been on there a month a so, and no issues so far.

    I've just had to email Clee after slicing open my finger on a KCNC bar plug earlier, but I guess that was just unlucky!

    Did it at the end of my ride putting the bike in the car, stuck most of it back together with superglue!

    superglue is amazing.

    Duct tape works well too as the adhesive tends to promote an immune response...

    too small for your frame or overtightened? or manufacturing defect

    Can't fit duct tape in the camelback, but always carry superglue for this purpose. 20 tubes for a £1 from poundland, alot better than watching blood spurt out, have to let it bleed for a bit first though to get the crud out.
